5 Ways to Manage Your Time Properly as a Believer

How to Manage Your Time Properly as a Believer

Time management for believers is one of the many proofs of true discipline as Paul recommends in 1st Corinthians 9:27.


1. Use a To-Do List

The God we serve is a God of order. As such, as believers, it is necessary that we take on the attributes of our father by staying orderly. One good way to do this is by keeping a to-do-list and staying true to it. One of the many things a to-do-list helps you with is to manage your time properly. With a good to-do list, you will discover that you can cover much more in short time and have more than enough time to do other similarly relevant activities.

2. Stay Punctual

To stay punctual, you simply need to put things in the right place at the right time. Attending meetings at minutes later than expected or showing up to important gatherings is a nonchalant behaviour and should not be exhibited by a true believer in Christ.

3. Don't Procrastinate

In the past, you have likely heard that procrastination is the thief of time and that is the exact truth. The Bible in Proverbs 6:4 shows a proper example of why you should not procrastinate. Also, there’s this popular saying that you should “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone” - Pablo Picasso

In Proverbs 10:4, the Bible says that a lazy hand is open for poverty to step in, but diligent hands bring wealth 

5. Get Adequate Rest

While it is not a good idea to sleep all day, it is necessary that you get enough rest to be able to maximise your working hours. A good sleep guarantees you a healthy mind
